Victor gallego, drummer of the colombian act MASACRE has died last Sunday, October 30th. We are very sad about this news and take the oportunity to send all our condolences and power to Victors relatives and also to the rest of the guys at the MASACRE camp.
The following message was posted on the webpage of the Eternal Night Fanzine: "When MASACRE released the EP "Barbarie y Sangre en Memoria de Cristo" back in 1993, the first thing that rule was the incredible drums on it. It was a blond guy called Victor Gallego playing them. Years later, Victor was still a part of this awesome band. With his serious look, his hairs getting longer with the time and his technique improving with every release. His drums still can be listened in the albums "Sacro", "Muerte verdadera Muerte" and "Total Death". Victor, your work is still in our memory..."
